Thursday at the Park


I watch
light and shadow
play across the bench
where you sat
a moment ago
when you told me
no

  4. Mary,

    I love the image created by your words.
    An emptiness..... and loneliness.

    Best wishes, Eileen

  6. Thanks Ella, I'm glad that came through. Feel free to call me Mary here, btw, I'm just trying to avoid confustion with the Mary who has actually been submitting before I started.

  7. It's kind of sad memory, that you portray in words.
    It's a nice piece, when we just look at something and wonder.
